Allegheny Shores

Location: Sharpsburg, PA


Live Work Learn Play was engaged by The Mosites Company (TMC) to transform a 52-acre former industrial (brownfield) site spanning 1.5 miles of shoreline along the Allegheny River, into a large-scale, mixed-use riverfront community. The new district aims to become one of Greater Pittsburgh’s signature waterfront neighbourhoods, offering a vibrant mix of commercial, residential (including workforce and affordable housing), civic, cultural and innovation uses, with a focus on health, well-being, active mobility, and environmental sustainability.


Through extensive stakeholder and community outreach, as well as detailed market, demographic and economic research, analysis, and modeling, LWLP helped the Mosites team identify and evaluate the target market, establish a compelling and viable development vision, positioning and strategic direction, and directed the creation of a broadly supported conceptual development plan. LWLP also worked with TMC to engage all levels of government (local, county, state, federal) to successfully secure critical public funding, overhauled site zoning and development permissions, and major site infrastructure interventions.
